There are hundreds if not thousands of web series’ making their way through the tubes of the internet that are well produced, well-acted, based on good ideas, or some combination of the above. There are even internet entities producing quality television-length programming (this, for example) that could just appear on tv one day with no fuss or confusion from viewers about what happened to their favorite actor/character/story arc. Series’ that have good reason to be forcibly delivered to our living rooms via legitimate networks.
Why then, television Gods, is this horrific mess going to be filling up the airwaves? (Margaret Lyons basically sums up my thoughts on the ‘Annoying Orange” phenomenon, so I defer to her comments. My only addition is: bleck!)
